NOTE: We now provide you with a momentary break from Ashley Alexandra Dupre news to bring you a lighter, less controversial political story.

Love him or hate him, there's no denying that President George W. Bush has faced tough economic and diplomatic issues during two terms in office.

Daughter Jenna Bush's upcoming wedding has presented its own challenges.

"I had to face some difficult spending decisions and I've had to conduct sensitive diplomacy. That's called planning for a wedding," George W. Bush said, eliciting laughs from the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

President Bush, who will be replaced by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton or John McCain on January 20, has bigger things to stress out about - wedding planning.

Proving that even being Commander-in-Chief can't get you out of shelling out too much for your daughter's wedding - or get you control over the details, the Prez quipped when asked how the planning is going:

"They're letting me spend money, that's how it's going."

Jenna Bush is set to wed Henry Hager at her parents' ranch in Crawford, Texas, on May 10. The couple's engagement was announced in August.

Bush, 26, and Hager, 29, who make a very cute couple, recently enjoyed respective bachelorette and bachelor weekends in Florida.

Ashlee Simpson says a makeover changed her life. Somehow we imagine her pimp and all that plastic surgery contributed something as well.

Whatever the reason, the girl has come a long way since being a "style wallflower" in the shadow of older sister Jessica Simpson.

So Ash says as this week's Us Weekly top story - which breaks a seemingly years-long run by Britney Spears and The Hills cast on the cover.

Not to worry, though - both are still in the sidebar.

"I used to look at a beautiful girl on the cover of a magazine and think I could never be that," the 23-year-old Ashlee Simpson told Us.

But Simpson - who has churned through countless haircuts and colors over her six years of stardom - has graced many a celebrity news rag.

Now the lip-synching Pete Wentz plaything is the cover girl on Us' 2008 Beauty Makeover Special issue, whatever the heck that is.

"I definitely embrace my sexy side, but at the end of the day, I still feel like the girl next door," the always-insightful Ashlee Simpson tells Us.

The girl next door with a new nose, lips and rack, apparently.

Simpson also opened up about her April 2006 rhinoplasty: "I think as long as people have two eyes, then you probably know the answer."

"[Plastic surgery] is something that everybody should think about for a really long time," the hack singer stated. "Once you know that it is something you really feel comfortable with, then to each their own."

Still, the star downplays her own transformation (follow this link for another kind of Ashlee Simpson - the Oklahoma version).

"I was never really unhappy with how I looked, [and] I don't think I am more beautiful than I was [before]," Ashlee Simpson said.

"I just see the same old goofy girl I see every day."

We're getting to know Ashley Alexandra Dupre pretty quickly ever since the real name of Eliot Spitzer's call girl "Kristen" was revealed by the New York Times.

Here are some pictures of the 22-year-old call girl and aspiring singer culled from her MySpace page. As you can see, Eliot Spitzer has some decent taste.

Devoid of morals and a complete idiot, but with decent taste.

Behold, the fresh-faced, high-priced prostitute that became an unwitting aide in bringing down the Governor of New York State, Ashley Alexandra Dupre ...

Just 22 years old, Ashley Alexandra Dupre (better known as Kristen), is an unwitting star in a steamy drama that took down New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer.

Kristen, described in an affidavit as having a February 13 rendezvous with Eliot Spitzer at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, has spent the last few days in her ninth-floor rental in an upscale New York apartment.

According to the New York Times, Ashley Alexandra Dupre made a brief appearance in court Monday as a witness in the case against four people charged with operating the infamous prostitution ring known as Emperor's Club V.I.P.

In a series of telephone interviews Tuesday and today, Ashley Alexandra Dupre said she had slept little over the past week due to the stress from the case.

"I just don't want to be thought of as a monster," the pretty New Jersey native - 5-foot-5 and 105 pounds - said as she revealed the tiniest tidbits of her story.

Born Ashley Youmans but now known as Ashley Alexandra Dupre or "Kristen," she spoke softly, with good humor, and added with significant understatement:

"This has been a very difficult time. It is complicated."

Ashley Alexandra Dupre has not been charged as of this post.

The lawyer appointed to represent her, Don D. Buchwald, told a judge in court on Monday that she was subpoenaed to testify in a grand jury investigation.

Eliot Spitzer, who is married to Silda Spitzer and has three teenage daughters, announced today that he will resign as governor effective Monday.

Red Bull? Check. Pack of smokes? Check. Movie? Check. This checklist was all that Adnan Ghalib needed to sail right on through the gates of Britney Spears' Summit Circle compound last night - a bit of a departure from last weekend.

Amid rumors that he had been boinking, or at least sending sexual text messages to Amanda Pagel - a random girl rumored to be dating Perry Ullmann from Bravo's Make Me a Supermodel - Adnan was not allowed in on Saturday.

Brit's beau was denied entry into the compound as the paparazzi surrounded his car and covered the scene in an epic display of embarrassment and rejection.

But Adnan Ghalib is nothing if not resilient.

Looking at this photo, we know why. Britney may get pissed from time to time, but how can she resist the smooth-talkin', easy-ridin', Middle-Eastern love doctor?

Pimpin' ain't easy, but for Adnan Ghalib, it's necessary, beeyotch.

Kate Moss is garnering headlines once again - and not for her cocained use, waifish appearance or the antics of her idiot, drug-addict boyfriends.

Photos of a nude Kate Moss and of Gisele Bundchen naked are set to be auctioned off at Christie's with an estimated price tag of $3 million.

That's $3 million more than the (HOT!) one posted below... although the ones being auctioned off may be of slightly higher quality.

Gisele Bundchen Nude Pic

For sale: Naked Kate Moss and Gisele Bundchen nude (above). Nice. Very nice.

According to reports, "The collection includes nude portraits of models Kate Moss and Gisele Bundchen, and an image of Brigitte Bardot. Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon and Irving Penn are among the photographers."

The images, which come from the collection of German-born Gert Elfering, go on sale at Christie's in New York on April 10. You can either book a flight to Germany or peep our gallery of Gisele Bundchen photos. Your call!

Either way, you'll like what you see... but that's as close as you're gonna get. Only Tom Brady gets to see the real deal up close and personal. Jackass.

We're sad and shocked to report this, but Brandon Davis, a.k.a. Greasy Bear, just can't seem to catch a break. Or get a life of some sort.

The oil heir, who wears quite a lot of it on his head apparently, was tossed out of West Hollywood's Sunset Marquis Hotel last night.

Wearing a headband, the oil heir, who appeared to be under the influence, "was lying on a couch in the bar, making a scene," a source says.

After about 20 minutes, Greasy Bear was asked to leave. A friend, which apparently he has, then escorted him out of the hotel.

It's a familiar pattern for Brandon Davis, who's been kicked out of house parties, clubs, casinos and even his own brother Alexander's wedding.

That's just in the past year, too. A problem may be emerging here.

Still, at least the Greasy one hasn't gotten arrested for heroin possession like, say, his other brother, Jason Davis (a.k.a. Gummi Bear).

Not a good couple of weeks for these rotund ursine creatures.

A veteran of rehab 2001 and again in 2006, Brandon Davis actually been linked to some hot girls in the past. He also dated Mischa Barton.

We love the state of Oklahoma.

Our favorite celebrity, Carrie Underwood is from there, as are more than three million wonderful, honest-to-goodness, hard-working Americans.

We'll give them a mulligan on Sally Kern.

Our point is that we love Oklahoma and mean no offense by the photos below ... we just had to pass along this funny creation of Planet Hiltron.

Follow the link to that site for many more doctored photos like these, which morph some of our favorite celebrities into honorary "Oklahomans" ...

ABOVE: A frighteningly realistic, Oklahoma-style Britney Spears - ding, dang, y'all! - and a permed-up Ashlee Simpson. BELOW: Oklahoma Tom Cruise (nice pants, guy) and his close friends and neighbors, David and Victoria Beckham.

Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack, her alleged screenwriter husband, are weeks away from celebrating their first wedding anniversary.

Now Simon has set his sights on another milestone: Cleaning out Brittany's accounts and fleeing to South America Starting a family!

Mr. & Mrs. Monjack

At a W Magazine-Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art gala, Monjack, 38, told People: "Please God, next year [we're] having a family!"

"Yes! Yes!" chimed in Brittany Murphy, 30.

"In about a year" they plan to have children. But, joked Simon Monjack (a.k.a. Con-jack) "apparently, according to the Internet, I already have several!"

Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack already have endured plenty of scrutiny - via, as they put it, "the blogs" - over their seedy relationship.

"All these ridiculous people have come out and said all this nonsense when we got married, [but] thank god we had the substance and the history within that to [say], 'Yeah, whatever!'" says Monjack, renouncing celebrity gossip and noting that he's been friends with Brittany Murphy, he claims, since she was 17.

WTF?

"We still don't understand what happened. It's made us laugh, it's made us cry, but it's made us stronger," he added.

Kanye West would be proud.

Brittany Murphy's #1 solution for dealing with all the negativity: getting bad plastic surgery on her lips. Just kidding. Her strategy is no celebrity gossip!

"We did stop using the Internet lately. No blogs. We're a blog-free couple!"
